Our intent is that all children who attend Fountains Primary School will achieve their full potential, becoming as independent as possible within the curriculum pathway they are following. We want all young people to be able to communicate, self-regulate, be healthy and hold control of their behaviour, to the best of their ability.
We celebrate the uniqueness of every child, and their ability to be creative and challenged whilst welcoming diversity, cultures and talents. Their ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values with a vision to prepare them for life beyond primary school.
Our curriculum design recognises that our children need four different pathways for their future life. Each pathway is set to ensure that every child’s prior knowledge is built through precision teaching and first-hand experiences, allowing everyone to develop social awareness, and interpersonal skills, build resilience and show initiative, whilst becoming creative and critical thinkers.
The impact of our four pathways is that children make the best possible progress and attainment which is demonstrated through our summative assessment systems. Every child is well-rounded and becomes the best they can be by the time they leave us in year 6. We know this because of the progress we can see in their books and the stakeholder feedback we receive, which is incredibly positive.
Please explore the intent, implementation and impact of each of our pathways below.
